My Canon Powershot A95 quite taking pictures suddenly on our trip to Turkey. When I attempt to take a picture the storage card records a black screen. The flash goes off and I can hear the click sound of the simulated shutter. I can still see all the previous picture that I took in the viewing mode. Is this repairable or do I need to purshase a new camera?
There is no hard reset, technically removing the batteries does a hard reset. It does seem as though your imaging sensor (CCD) or the image processing circuitry has failed. If your camera is no longer under warranty then it would be in your advanta ... Digital Cameras

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very ... Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

LCD/Recording Picture When I take a picture, the camera will only record about 1/4 of the picture on the LCD screen, then rest of the image is black. I was taking lots of pictures before that and the image recorded on the LCD. All of a sudden (in the mdidle of taking lots of pictures), I noticed the the whole image was not recording. I have changed the battery, changed Compact Flash Cards and nothing corrects it. Even when I upload the picture to the computer, the image is only one about 1/4

When I turn on my camera to take a picture the display screen is completely black. If I try and take a picture nothing comes out. The whole picture is completely black. The camera is still functioning as if it is taking the picture. The flash continues to work, but unfortunately no picture comes out. But when I switch to the display mode to view my pictures, I can see the old pictures from my memory card. But I just can not take any new pictures. What should I do? What do you think the problem i

DC-3185 Frozen A really odd problem is my son's DC3185 is frozen with a live LCD and the Flash in auto mode except the flash icon "flashes" I see a good LCD image of what I am looking at but can not take a picture.

Hi, My Yashica EZ F9 Zoom will not turn on. The "on" green light will flash for a moment but then the camera shuts off within seconds. I put in fresh batteries, new memory card, and nothing happens.

A85 Dead During a normal session, switching from picture-taking mode to view mode, the lens would not retract and the picture in the view froze with the current image. I could not turn off the camera. After a while, the batteries got very hot, so I removed them. I took out the CF card. Later, I replaced the batteries and the put the card back in. The camera worked very briefly, but the LCD view would not work, displaying flashing lines on a black background. New batteries didn't help. The camera

No pictures Suddenly my Canon S230 does not write to the compact flash card. I've swapped out cards to no avail. Flash, display are normal. I've used the camera for 4 years and am completely familiar with its operation. I'd hate to think it is dead. EllenB

I have a canon powershot sx200 IS and I recently went on vacation and took a lot of pictures using teh SD memory card provided with the camera. For some reason, after almost filling the card I received a memory card locked error. I checked the card, it was not locked. I even tried in another camera and same error. So I got a new SD card, took more photos and then all of those photos were erased. I could not find them when reviewing on the camera, another camera, or even with a USB card reader. A
The likely reason this keeps happening is that these cards weren't formatted in the camera when you first got them. However, don't do so just yet as formatting also erases the card. If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've reco ... Canon PowerShot SX 200 IS Digital Camera
No picture I have a FinePix S2 Pro that I have had a couple years. Yesterday when I took pictures with it every picture is black when viewed on the LCD screen. The lens cap is off and I have tried several different lenses and memory cards, adjusted the ISO, tried it with and without a flash, but still the same result. I can view previously recorded pictures, so I know its not the LCD screen. Could the CCD have gone bad? Any thoughts by anyone?
My S2 is on its second out of warranty CCD, and Fuji replaced both for free, the first was due to the same dead CCD as many has had, the second was due to the CCD being defective to the point of being off center and producing photos that had a very d ... Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera

"Invisible" Pictures I just took a day's worth of pictures, and while I can view all of them on the camera in viewer mode, about 18 are simply missing when I hook the memory card up to the computer. It's mostly the last few. I tried taking new pictures and even a video clip to see if something had stopped recording, and those don't show up on the computer either. Any ideas how I can get those last few to register on the computer? Otherwise it looks like I won't be able to save copies of my p

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]
Someone else posted that Canon fixed it for free. \015\012\015\012Here's a link to the Canon service site that explains their take on the problem. Yes they will fix it if it is indeed a CCD issue.\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I have a canon powershot s1is. There is no image through view finder or on the LCD. Menu works and theme pictures come up. It also still displays previous pictures already on memory card. No new pictures are displayed.
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

I think it should take more that 4G's. Maybe it was the way you inserted the SD card. These Nikons can be a bit funny about such things. So if you haven't already sorted the problem I'd suiggest you turn off the camera. Remove the batteries then remo ... Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera
